''You Are Beautiful'', sometimes translated as ''He's Handsome'' or ''He's Beautiful'', is a 2009 KoreanSeries RomanticComedy about a girl named Go Mi Nyeo who is pulled out of a convent to impersonate her brother Go Mi Nam and take his place in a boy band called A.N.JELL while her brother gets his plastic surgery fixed. Members of this boy band include:

* Hwang Tae Kyung, the proud, arrogant and completely anal band leader (with a heart of gold).
* Kang Shin Woo, the painfully nice guy.
* Kang On Yu, nicknamed Jeremy, the funny guy.

Go Mi Nam has to hide her identity while trying to succeed as a pop idol. [[HilarityEnsues Comedy]], [[RomanticComedy romance]] and [[AllLoveIsUnrequited drama]] abound.

In May 2011, it was announced that a [[{{Adaptation}} Japanese remake]] of this drama will be released in Japan in July 2011 as ''Ikemen Desu ne'' (美男ですね).
